has finally gotten underway. senate majority leader harry reid kicked things off this morning continuing to portray sonia sotomayor as the ideal candidate. she developed a 17-year record as a mod at mainstream judge. -- as a moderate mainstream judge. when the judge testified before the senate judiciary committee for four grueling days, she respectfully and thoroughly answered questions from both sides of the aisle, democrats and republicans. >> but republicans say the answers sotomayor gave don't match the record she has left behind in speeches and writings, that suggest she believes judges can and should be influenced by personal factors outside the law, so even though both democrats and republicans ak nomed today that the vetting on the senate judiciary committee was fair, there is still six republicans who have indicated they will cross party lines to vote yes while 28 will vote no. there are still six unknowns on the republicans' side of the aisle and today senate minority leader mitch mcconnell renewed concerns that sotomayor will govern based on feelings rather than law
are saying, stop. >> gregg: scott, in the beginning people like harry reid and nancy pelosi and surrogates of the president, were saying all these protestors and townhalls are not genuine, it's a setup. they are evil and unamerican. you have a pole of what americans think of these protestors? >> 49% believe they represent the views of their neighbors. 37% don't. by the way, not surprisingly is partisan view and harry reid were one of views the democrats felt and republicans had a different perspective of the situation. again, it's important to remember this is more than just about health care. it's part of the frustration. there is also a gap, 49% of people representing opinions of their neighbors. so people are squeamish about the behavior itself. >> julie: we used one of your polls and posed the question to the twitter followers who do you fear more. i found that one person wrote, i trusted government more, you can vote them out every four years but you cannot do the same with insurance ceos. and insurance companies, definitely and if we had more competition to private insurance companie
wearing swastikas. harry reid and then called them on american. -- harry reid then called them un-american. bill: chairman of the republican senate group joins us this morning, your reaction? >> petrilli disappointing and very sad. in fact -- >> it really disappointing and very sad. in fact, democrats in the house were told not to talk on this issue. we were not allowed to send information to our constituents. if anyone is drowning out opposing views, it is the democratic leadership. the real issue is what is in the bill. it is not what the american people want. that is why they are voicing their american concerns. there is nothing on american about voicing -- uun-american for -- there is nothing un- american about voicing concerns. bill: it goes on further. "health care is complex and touches every american. people must be allowed to learn the facts. do you think that the people know what is in that bill? >> i do not believe so. but if the american people had not been speaking out loudly to slow this process down, the bill would have already passed the house. the speaker said tha
, they are getting an earful. they do not work for harry reid. they do not work for nancy pelosi. they do not work for barack obama. they work for the taxpayers, and the taxpayers are infuriated because they have enough -- they know enough to know that more americans are out of jobs, and, greta, at some point, if you are really strapped for cash, the first thing you do is you stop spending what you do not have. greta: well, what people have to realize, too, if we end up having to print more money, we will end up with inflation, and some people think as long as they are working, their wages will go up with the inflationary prices, but now that we are part of the global economy, the rest of the world is not going to want to buy our products at these higher prices, so it is a much more serious problem now with inflation than it was years ago. >> it is a serious problem. the chinese are talking about a new monetary standard and not the u.s. dollar. these are unprecedented types of conversations taking place because people simply do not have confidence. geithner went to asia, trying to tell them that e

majority leader harry reid warned his colleagues they might have to work into their scheduled summer vacation if they don't act before the weekend. so you can bet they will act before the weekend. but even as the program is helping folks in the market for a new car, it appears to be hurting certain charities. you have seen their ads in the newspaper, the ones asking for you to donate your old car. turns out cash for clunkers is a little bit more popular than a tax write-off for clunkers. adam housley is in sun valley, california, with more on that tonight. adam, how much are charities losing? >> shepard, in some cases, 30%, 40%. here at rightway charities in sun valley, a car like this might get $400 in an auction. it will auction off 20 or so cars like this a week. pretty good money going to the local boys and girls clubs and other charities in the area. now they are saying down 30% to 40%. their numbers are dropping significantly which means less money to some of these charities. shepard? shepard: i'm curious about what the specific difference is between cashing in your car and don

extraordinary. >greta: apparently this has gotten under the skin of some. harry reid said in an interview, he referred to some of these people as "evil monsters who are using lies, innuendo, rumor to drag out national the bakdebate" >> you have other opinions written by the leader of the house and the speaker of the house in which they said that these people were acting at american. you have the white house through organizing for america, this is the front group for obama, they sent an e-mail that said that these people were tools of the insurance industry. these are ordinary people, many of whom have never been involved politically before, who feel extraordinarily concerned about this gigantic monster of a bill that seems to be rammed down everyone's throat and they want to make their opinions known. there are many people who do something for the first time, the first time they participated in politics so they are rushed around the edges of -- rough around the edges. they're not exactly polished. as a result, members of congress should pay more attention. greta: it is almost like this bill h

're not going to stand here. [ shouting ] >> harry reid and the rest of the people in congress and the senate, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they're asking us to be on? >> but nobody's talking about setting up -- putting 47 million people in a public plan. we don't know that's going to be part of the bill. what we are talking about -- what we are talking about is giving people who don't have health insurance options. >> a direct assault on our personal liberties, our prernl freedom, our personal privacy. you need to open it up to the free markets. you need to get the government the hell out of our way. >> meanwhile, the health care industry is spending tens of billions of dollars to influence the reform debate and the battle is about to get even more fierce. our national political correspondent jessica yellin has that part of the story. >> reporter: here are some staggering numbers. $39 million. that's the amount of money the insurance industry has spent on lobbying since march. $133 million, the amount spent by the rest in the fight for health care reform. >> the frenet

harry reid is confident they will pass the bill. reject all the amendments. so far the senators have said no to four. three more to go. shepard? shepard: wendell goler live at the white house. thanks. the housing crisis now and a dire prediction. almost half of all americans with mortgages, almost half will eventually owe more on their loans than their homes are worth. deutsche bank estimates now it will happen by the start of the year 2011. that's 25 million american homeowners under water on their loans. 48% of all families with mortgages, imagine that being under water. makes it a lot more difficult for borrowers onto modify or change their loans. and even though we have seen some positive reports on home sales in recent weeks. prices do continue to fall. we'll have more business news, including a look at the jobs market coming up in just a few minutes. police say he went on a shooting spree at a health club, then committed suicide. but now it turns out he left behind some messages. >> i wanted to continue immediately to start moving on this. i didn't realize i had that much time.
when i see one. >> harry reid and the rest of the people in congress and the senate, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they are asking us to be on? >> you will get your turn in a minute. >> the answer is, ok. bill: but some democratic leaders say many of those protesters you saw are plants, anti-obama fanatics who were conducting a kind of sabotage. bill: with us now, fox news analyst alan colmes and monica crowley. you say what? >> i say the american people are mad as hell, bill, and they are not going to take it anymore. this health care debacle is the last straw. they see their government unresponsive to their needs and to their desires. they see out of control profligate spending coming out of washington with a stimulus package that has failed, with cap and trade which is the largest tax increase in the history of the world. on top of that they see that. bill: you're starting to sound like dick morris. let's just keep it on health care. they say it's easy to stack any town meeting with anti-obama zealots, and it is, it is. you can do that through the internet.
seats. that was pretty bad. that wasn't a 40%, 40% deal. laura: evil mongers as we heard harry reid refer to people at the town hall events. evil monger, astro turf fringe, food fight. none of that has worked. discussing civil engagement in this way, a man who was a community organizer, we have people organizing. they might not agree with his agenda but they are organizing. why isn't this celebrated? why is it constantly dismissed as irrelevant and by the white house. >> i don't think the white house is so much dismissing it as. laura: food fight. robert gibbs called it a food fight. it's not respective of the country. was boseman monday that tana representative today. >> i'm sure people on the left would say today was. people on the right would say arlen specter was. laura: i think the president of the united states should celebrate the fact that more people are engaged in this public debate than ever before. that's what we thought about it. >> i think what you are seeing in the outrage at the town halls is powerlessness. these are people that by and large, their party is out of po
a call and let them know that, like harry reid, nancy pelosi, who are coming out saying we're g.o.p. hackers. it's insulting, if you think about it. it's absolutely insulting to all of these average janes and joes going out there and want their congressman's ear. greta: dana, thank you. of course, we're watching all of this. thank you. >> thanks, greta. greta: up next, steve moore says he has proof that the stimulus is not working. he's going to tell you. plus, any time you're a mistress slips in a side door with a baby people say is yours, there's probably bad news coming. just ask former senator john edwards. discover new seafood creations... inspired from around the country. from the northeast, try our new garlic-roasted maine lobster and crab bake. or from the south, try our new orleans wood-grilled shrimp jambalaya. for a limited time. at red lobster. having to go in the middle of traffic and just starting and stopping. having to go in the middle of a ballgame and then not being able to go once i got there. and going at night. i thought i had a going problem. my doctor said
here that the republicans can win these governors' races, harry reid, chris dodd, and in the house that democrats could lose the majority? could that happen? >> i think it's hard for them to lose the majority in the senate but easy for them to ends up with a net loss of three or four. i think they will lose badly in governorships and there's an outside, but growing possibility, that you could begin to see the republicans take the house in 2010. and the reason is these things compound. when you have people that are mad over one item and then they're mad over a second and third item, they build momentum. sean: by the way, where you now should be snitched on and the place for everyone to go is flag@white house.gov because you just said something negative against president barack obama. >> maybe i'll submit something myself, so they won't have to have anyone report me. sean: i've invited my entire audience to go snitch on me. thank you, mr. speaker. thank you very much. coming up, my exclusive interview with don and deirdre imus. the new unemployment data is coming out tomorrow. looks
not renew it? >> not much. senate majority leader harry reid plans to start debate after the debate on -- vote on sotomayor this afternoon. he thinks he has the votes to pass it, and it is the last order of business before the august recess. so opponents of the program are not going to want to spend a lot of time on what they know is a losing effort. supporters say that the program is the most effective program there is, doing all the right things, taking gas-guzzlers' off the street, replacing them with cars that get better mileage. critics say that it is more deficit spending and bailout money, another example of the government choosing winners and losers. jon: is it true that most of them are built by foreign manufacturers? >> 6 of the top 10 cars are built by foreign manufacturers, but most of them are built in this country. hyundai has added protection in alabama. gm has the biggest share of new car sales, detroit's big three has a little more than 45%, and the three japanese companies have about 36%. jon: all right. thank you. jane: if you drive a midsize sedan, a fender bende
of this program is quote in harry's court refering to senator majority leader harry reid will he bring the house majority in extending it for the vote and will the f word rise speaking of filibuster. but here's another question they are facing as well. where will the money come from and senator chuck schumer says they could get the money from the energy loan fund and senator feinstein says democratic leaders agreed take it out of tarp but many say the program could be considered beyond this $2 billion and she was once opposed to the bill but now touts it as a good plan because consumers are turning in their clunkers and getting cars that get on average 61 miles better on average so looking at it this way it remains to be seen how the republicans will vote on this. megyn: where does it stop? how much money should we put into cash for clunkers? in the meantime you mentioned the f word. what are republicans saying about this program? because we heard it across the board. they said we're going to filibuster and not let it get a vote then others saying over our dead bodies. where do the republicans s
